The Division I Board of Directors have approved
a package of sweeping reforms that gives conferences the option of adding more money to scholarship offers, schools the opportunity to award scholarships for multiple years, imposes tougher academic standards on recruits and changes the summer basketball recruiting model.

"It was one of the most aggressive and fullest agendas the board has ever faced," "They moved with dispatch on it, and I think they're taking positive steps for schools and student-athletes."
